I discover unknown artists and share their art and stories with the world. My curated collection focuses on 20th-century art of every medium, including paintings, sculpture, ...... My education in art starts with my life-long love and appreciation of art in all it's forms. I have gained a deep knowledge of California artists and their works through serving on the Oakland Museum Women's Board for the past 8 years. And I have been fortunate to work closely with the best art docents, curators, art professors, artists, auction houses, appraisers and dealers in Northern California.
We buy vintage art collections. Please contact MGH Discovered Art if you are interested in selling a collection.
How I started discovering art:
In Oakland, California there is a 96,000 sq. ft. warehouse that holds the treasures of the world and beyond. Well, that might be an exaggeration. But it holds all of the contents from the Oakland Museum of California's annual White Elephant Sale. I volunteer in the art department at the warehouse and it is there that I really discovered art. Every month we sort through, research and appraise all of the art donated to the sale.
Learning about the artists that were never "discovered" and seeing their work fascinates me. I work alongside the Bay Area's most knowledgeable art experts, the most talented artists, distinguished curators, teacher and docents. I am so lucky. I have learned more about art in this warehouse than I could ever learn taking college art courses. Every time I walk in that warehouse I get that same feeling...
Why I opened a MGH Discovered Art?
I found my passion. Working in the warehouse and helping customers find a special piece of art is something I love doing. Discovering the art of the "unknowns" and bringing their art and story to the public is my passion. That is why I opened MGH Discovered Art. I get to do all the things I love and share it with the world.
